When Qatar won the 2022 bid in controversial fashion in 2010, it seemed like having the World Cup return to the United States would be impossible but the 2026 bid was first rate and combining Canada and Mexico was convincing.

The joint North American bid defeated their north African rival by a margin of 69 votes, 134 to 65, to win the right to organise the first World Cup to be expanded to 48 teams.

The Fédération Internationale de Football Association, or FIFA, announced North America beat out Morocco.

The US hosted the World Cup in 1994, while the tournament was held twice in Mexico (1970 and 1986).

Bernier, who is employed by the Montreal Impact as a coach in its youth academy, said the arrival of the tournament in North America and potentially in Montreal will give a boost to young Canadian players with the talent and the drive to play professionally.

U.S. Babies, Toddlers Eat Way Too Much Added Sugar, Study Finds
The measured amount of extra sugar reportedly consumed by the children in the study was based entirely on the parent's memory. The research team also plans to examine the specific sources of added sugar young children are consuming in the future.

The games will be played in 16 cities.

The North American bid offers up 23 candidate cities with Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal representing Canada.

She believes the city, and the Olympic Stadium, will be ready for the tournament, due in part to financial guarantees from the federal government. Canada and Mexico would then host ten games each.

U.S. soccer president Carlos Corderio said after his bid's success on Wednesday: "It's a bit emotional for us today". Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup, though it was the site of the 2015 Women's World Cup. After controversy surrounded the awarding of the 2018 World Cup to Russian Federation and the 2022 finals in Qatar, the vote was the first to be decided by the FIFA congress.

"This shouldn't be a geopolitical discussion or decision", U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro said this week, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Catlett expects discussions with U.S. Soccer over Jacksonville's potential role in supporting events to start within the next two to three months.

Herdman pointed to the performance of national team member Alphonso Davies, 17, who spoke to delegates ahead of their vote Wednesday, as representative of the quality of the young talent on his team.

The news was met with excitement throughout the country.

"But with the World Cup coming, we'll definitely develop some of those role models that players like Luis. can aspire to", he says.

Final preparations begin for Trump-Kim high-stakes summit
